“We almost just quit and left because of how nasty netizens are. Like we’ve grown a lot thicker skin now, but it’s something that’s very difficult to get used to.”  - Simon

Lately there’s been a lot of animosity directed at EatYourKimchi, especially here on Tumblr. People are being misled into thinking that Simon and Martina are bad people and that all they do is rag on idols. I made this gifset because I wanted to remind the kpop fandom of some of the things that EatYourKimchi has said that many people seem to have forgotten. They do love kpop. They do respect idols even though they joke about them. Making fun of things is not all of what they do, but that is what the kpop fandom seems to believe nowadays. Stop focusing on the few mistakes that they’ve made, and remember everything else they’ve done: they are not bad people. They are a fun, lighthearted and beautiful couple that have enhanced many experiences in the kpop fandom. Even if they have not done so for you, they have made thousands of people laugh with their carefree spirit. Many people love them, and I just wish that people would stop making others feel bad for doing so. “Why take pride in NOT liking something? That’s silly!” –Simon and Martina

Simon and Martina, fighting!

what’s funny about this if it were the other way round and a guy dancing with 3 naked/showering girls there would be a massive uproar about it

You know what funny is almost every single music video these days has females dancing half naked in it and no one actually bats an eye. It’s a social norm now. However when Marina does the opposite she has people call her a hypocrite. Since when are men above being objectified? It’s almost like getting a glimpse of what women have to go through everyday. Not nice is it.

but you dont fight sexism by being a sexist yourself……you think thats gonna teach them???

Marina created an alter ego - Electra Heart. She objectifies men through this alter ego to explore women’s roles in societies and pop culture. Electra Heart is all about being the archetypes of the sexual female and the archetypes of the bitch -pretty, sexually powerful, seductive, productive, etc.
So she isn’t really saying ‘I’m bored of being objectified, lets objectify someone else for a change’.
She’s saying ‘look what happens when the men are naked and I’m clothed. Look at how much power that gives me, how much control.” She uses the established norm of objectifying girls vs the casualness of objectifying men to point out its stupidity.
She’s trying to point out the differences between players and sluts, men with game vs girls who can’t keep their legs shut. Its about the double standard.
This is one clip from a video for one song from an entire album. The song explores female sexuality, and the archetypes of being a ‘home wrecker’. The rest of the album goes on to explore these themes in deeper ways, looking at the negative and positive.

^THAT COMMENTARY BLESS

This is perfect and I love whoever took the time to write that marina is perfect and beautiful and she’s just wonderful

Electra Heart is based on the Electra complex, a theory developed by Sigmund Freud about psycho sexual development. The Electra complex is the female version of the Oedipus complex, and both are based on Greek mythology. According to the 1982 Concise Encyclopedia of Psychiatry, the Oedipus complex is explained as follows; “Oedipus… who had been abandoned by his parents, in his wanderings came to Thebes at a time when the Theban sphinx… was demanding of each passer-by the answer to the riddle she had learnt…” it goes on to explain how she would kill anyone who answered wrong, however Oedipus got the answer right. “Oedipus entered Thebes, killed the King and married the Queen, Jocasta… not knowing that they were his own parents.” The Electra complex is derivative of a similar Greek myth, whereby Electra’s mother, Clytemnestra, killed her husband, Agamemnon, upon his return from Troy. Electra became furious at her mother, and persuaded her brother, Orestes to kill Clytemnestra in revenge. Freud based a theory on these myths, that all children developed their id, ego, super ego and sex drive in the early stages of life. This happens in five stages and if a child fixates (gets stuck) on one stage, it has an affect on the rest of their life. 
The Oedipus and Electra complexes are the internal battles that a child faces during the third “Phallic” stage, when they are roughly 3-6 years old. During this time, a boy will start to subconsciously try to compete with his father for sexual possession of his mother, and vice versa in girls. In normal psychosexual development, the children will accept that they cannot compete with their parents, and will then move onto the Latency stage. However, if they do not resolve their Oedipus or Electra complexes, this has an effect on the way they behave when forming relationships and dealing with social situations. If the boy fixates on the Phallic stage, he becomes over-ambitious, expresses aggressive tendencies, and is often very full of himself. 
If the Electra complex, (previously referred to as the feminine Oedipus attitude), is not resolved in girls, this causes the girl to develop “penis envy,” thus the girl strives to dominate men, which she does by being either overly seductive, or overly submissive. 
Electra Heart is based on the story of a girl whose Electra complex has been left unresolved and she grows up to strive to dominate men through being sexually active. She hides her emotions by not allowing herself to form attachments to anyone, as shown in the song How to be a Heart Breaker. The theme also shows itself in songs such as Starring Role, in the line “You like my dad, you get on well / I send my best regards from hell.” Songs like Homewrecker, Electra Heart, Power and Control, Hypocrates, Primadonnaand Bubblegum Bitch, are the strongest show cases of the effect a Phallic fixation can have on a person. Marina explores the possible implications that the attitude can have on the way a girl handles her emotions, a shown in Teen Idle, and how her future relationships are effected, such as in the song Radioactive and its music video. 
The music video for the song Electra Heart, shows her alter ego breaking free from her confinements, and thus moving on from her Phallic stage, however hard it may be for her. This is also symbolic of Marina leaving behind her exploration of the psychosexual development theory that was created and tested by Sigmund Freud.
Although the theory Freud created of psychosexual development, (and thus the Oedipus and Electra complexes), has since been disproved, Marina shows through her songs on the album Electra Heart how the implications, although not linked to the theory, are still very much present in social society. She tops off the album with the song Sex Yeah, which sums up how society views women and the roles that they play. 
Bottom line is, you can’t just base your opinion on her from her singles without delving deep into the meaning behind them. She is showing the world that we are a bunch of fucked up people that need to take a step back and assess the way we treat people based on stereotypes. If you don’t think that all of that is the most wonderfully intelligent thing you’ve ever heard in your whole life - the way that something as complicated as the works of Sigmund mother fucking Freud is explained in a single bubblegum pop album - then you are wrong and should think again. 

GOD BLESS ELECTRA HEART

This is “war.” This is Gaza. This is Palestine. Do you not see how bad things have gotten? And wats all over the news? Lebron going back to Cleveland. How can that be anywhere near the media when this is going on? How can you people turn a blind eye and pretend like this isn’t going on? It’s pretty pathetic. I posted a few videos and a few pictures and instead of everyone sharing and trying to raise awareness I lost over a hundred followers. To hell with you all who unfollow me because I show “bloody” pictures. Like I said in my previous post, I’m sorry for ruining your perfect day for a few seconds when this mans life has been ruined forever, like thousands of others in Gaza now. NOW! DO YOU PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND THIS IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING? RIGHT NOW AS YOU READ THIS PEOPLE ARE DYING?! IS IT SO HARD FOR YOU TO RAISE AWARENESS? IS IT? WHAT IN GODS NAME IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? HOW CAN YOU BE OKAY WITH NOT KNOWING ABOUT WHATS GOING ON?!? HOW. God please, please I am begging you from the bottom of my heart, please from every inch of my being with everything I have, please please please turn the Palestinians pain and suffering to happiness and ease. Please God I beg you because you’re the only option these people have left. It’s obvious the rest of the world gave up, please Dear God, please Ya Allah, help these people in every way possible. Do not let them feel an ounce of pain more than they already have had to endure. Please God destroy and make do with the evil that’s causing these catastrophic events. Please God do not let Israel do to us what Hitler did to them, not anymore. They’ve done more than enough. Please God I’ve turned to you so please don’t turn away from me and answer my prayers because you’re the only one that’s willing to help. #Ameen #PrayForGaza #PrayForPalestine #WhereIsTheHumanity #WhereIsTheUN #WhereIsTheHumanRights #WhereIsThePeace #EndTheGenocide #ImBegging #God #HesTheOnlyOneWhoWantsToHelp #StopBeingIgnorant #OpenYourEyes #StopTheKillings #EndTheOccupation #Palestine #PalestineWillBeFree #Israel #Terrorists #Terrorism #Murder
